W.O.W. EXCLUSIVE COVER REVEAL! Touching the Surface

Earlier this year, I got in touch with author Kimberly Sabatini. Her YA novel, TOUCHING THE SURFACE, will release in the Fall of 2012 by Simon Pulse.

Today....I GET TO REVEAL THE COVER!!!
But first, here's the synopsis. Yes, I'm going to make you wait. Because you have to read what it's about first! It only makes the cover that much MORE amazing!


Life altering mistakes are meant to alter lives…

When Elliot dies for the third time, she knows this is her last shot. There are no fourth-timers in this afterlife, so one more chance is all she has to get things right. But before she can move on to her next life, Elliot will be forced to face her past and delve into the painful memories she’d rather keep buried. Memories of people she’s hurt, people she’s betrayed…and people she’s killed. 



As she pieces together the mistakes of her past, Elliot must earn the forgiveness of her best friend and reveal the truth about herself to the two boys she loves…even if it means losing them both forever.

Are you amazed yet? It sounds AWESOME!! Okay, now for the cover...OMG THE COVER!!!


Drumroll, please, everyone....




....I can't hear you....DRUMROLL!!!




......



.....Come on, you can do better than that!!


......



.....Just a littttttle bit louder, you guys!




......




......

HERE IT IS!!!



....






IS IT NOT THE MOST GORGEOUS THING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN?!?! The colors!! The paper birds!!! The dark hair contrasting with the white outfit, the bleakness of the sky, the fact that you can't tell if it's winter or summer or spring or fall and..... and.... oh my word. I'm dying of the shiny! THE SHINY!

Please give TOUCHING THE SURFACE some cover love in the comments! What do you think?! Are you as crazy excited for this book as I am?!
